Fort Morgan Cay, like Roatan, has a rich history, a pirate history that is interesting to many people. Port Royal has been a highly wanted place for colonialists and pirates in the past. The English, the Spaniards, and even the pirates competed for a place and built fortresses because of their strategic position. In 1502, the pirates took over Port Royal and used it as a naturally protected port to defend against attacks from the sea. Three fortresses, two on the main island and the third on Fort Morgan Cay, protected the fleet in the port.

old pirate ruins

One of the most famous pirates operating nearby in the Caribbean was Sir Henry Morgan, better known as the famous Captain Morgan (who attacked mostly Spanish colonies and had a base in Jamaica). There are many stories and legends about pirates in Roatan and Fort Morgan Cay. And a ruin from pirate times remains on the island even today as valuable proof of that history.

plenty of mangroves and island’s own canal

This is a quote from their website what they offer:

After Christopher Columbus landed on the Bay Islands in 1502, pirates took over Port Royal to defend against assaults from the sea. One of the most famous explorers in the area was Sir Henry Morgan, known and feared as Captain Morgan.
